This term second-year BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design students have been working with Arbonauts, a multi-disciplinary company with an experimental and collaborative approach to performance.

The brief has been to design prototypes for the upcoming Inside Out Dorset Festival featuring the company in September.

Inspired by the company’s strong images using simple geometry and form the students were asked respond to the fantastic landscape of Hengistbury Head to create a visual language through the costume.

Founded in 2011 by Helen Galliano and Dimitri Launder, Arbonauts is a multi-disciplinary company with an experimental and collaborative core.
